EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the thrilling moment of the 15-metre Ostaria, Hispania, and Sophie Elizabeth racing upwind in 1911. The image showcases the elegance and power of these magnificent sailing yachts as they gracefully cut through the water with their gaff rig sails billowing in the wind. The race took place off the coast of Cowes, Isle of Wight, England, during a time when yacht racing was not only a sport but also a display of national pride. King Alfonso XIII of Spain himself participated in this prestigious event aboard his own yacht, Hispania. Designed by renowned naval architects Alfred Mylne and William Fife III respectively, Ostaria and Sophie Elizabeth were formidable contenders against King Alfonso's vessel. The competition between these three beautifully crafted boats symbolized both friendly rivalry among nations and technical excellence in yacht design. Captured from a boat view perspective, this monochrome photograph highlights every detail on deck - from crew members skillfully maneuvering ropes to spectators eagerly watching from afar. It is an exquisite snapshot frozen in time that transports us back to an era where sailing represented adventure, sophistication, and innovation. This remarkable piece serves as a testament to the enduring allure of sailboat racing while paying homage to the craftsmanship behind these majestic vessels. A true treasure for any maritime enthusiast or history lover seeking to relive moments steeped in nautical grandeur.
